James Brown died at the age of 73 on December 25, 2006, in Jacksonville, Florida. His girlfriend stated that he went into a diabletic episode.

The Hire was a series of eight short films (each about eight minutes long) produced for the Internet and directed by popular Hollywood and international directors. All starred Clive Owen as “The Driver”. Each film’s story highlighted the performance aspects of various BMW automobiles.

In the video below “The Driver” drag-races the Devil (Gary Oldman), in order to earn James Brown his soul.
